RES has announced the start of construction on Southern Power’s 200 MW Reading Wind Facility in Osage and Lyon counties, Kansas. Once complete in 2020, the 200MW project will generate roughly 760,000 megawatt hours of clean energy per year.
Southern Power, which announced it acquired the project from RES in October 2018, will operate and maintain the facility upon completion in the second quarter of 2020. The project consists of 62 Siemens Gamesa wind turbines and the energy output will be sold to Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. under a 12-year PPA.
